Paus, Herbert Andrew: America the Hope of All Who Suffer..


Size: 36×58


Paus, Herbert Andrew “America the Hope of All Who Suffer.” Unusual and rare, the title of America, the hope of all who suffer – and dread of all who do wrong” is illustrated by victims tied to an Iron Cross. The Iron Cross was traditioally awarded to German soldiers for valor, here its meaning has reversed to symbolize what the poster terms frightfulness. Memorable hard hitting image for a conservation poster. 36×58 near mint, conservation backed.
